The paramount concern in determining the appropriate custodial arrangement for children is the “best interests of the Children”. Divorce is hard enough on kids, so reaching an agreement on custody and access is preferred. Where the parties cannot agree, there are many factors the Court will consider in determining the appropriate outcome. The Court may appoint an attorney to represent the Children and may even require forensic psychological evaluations. Contact our experienced attorneys to discuss your case today.
A “Post-Judgment” proceeding is the term used to describe applications made to the Court after the Judgment of Divorce has been signed. Although the Divorce is technically over, there are times where a court must intervene to ensure that the parties are compliant with the express terms of the Divorce or to modify the Judgment where appropriate when a party is experiencing a change in their personal or financial circumstances. Do not wait to speak to an attorney to address your post-judgment issues.
